10 Annoyingly Catchy Pop Songs You Probably Love To Hate

12 January 2016 2:35 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

tumblr

The line between what makes a song good and what makes a song terrible can often be a thin one, depending on who you ask. Because for every person who thinks Oasis made some of the defining songs of the 90s, you’ll find three who think the lead singer sounded like a whinier, more British Fran Drescher on heroine. And so, to them, they would consider that “bad.”

There are, however, some songs that I think we can all agree are objectively abysmal. “The Macarena.” “It’s A Small World.” Fergie’s entire discography.

And then there’s another category, the one that encompasses all those admittedly catchy songs that you still can’t stand, for one reason or another. They’ve got a good beat, or a memorable hook, or a chorus that begs to be sung along to…but you still hate them with the passion »
